About Hans Theessink
Theesink, a native of the Netherlands, is an expert Acoustic Blues guitar player and singer-songwriter who imbues his material with the history of the blues while concurrently bringing it a sensibility that's all his own. A sure-handed bottleneck slide and standard acoustic guitar player, he easily brings forth a wide spectrum of sounds, from the Delta Blues of Robert Johnson to the more urbane sounds of Big Bill Broonzy. He has a deep, rumbling voice that's resonant enough to overcome the trace of a Dutch accent. He consistently surrounds himself with great players and often uses brass for a funky New Orleans feel.
